Track Name: Equations
You displaced my lungs
In the most reckless of combinations
That left me solving equations
Long after I could breath
And I'll always blame you
For the knowledge of blacking out
Days after trying
To figure you out
figure you out
I'll figure you out
Keep the pace
And I don't want to talk about it
You're headstrong
You're headstrong
Keep the pace
And I don't want to talk about it
You're headstrong
You're headstrong

You taught my tongue
To show emotion
With all lack of devotion
That I could conceive
And I'm fit to tame you
But it's hard to move around
how devoted
you are to keeping yourself down

Keep the pace
And I don't want to talk about it
You're headstrong
You're headstrong
Keep the pace
And I don't want to talk about it
You're headstrong
You're headstrong

You displaced my lungs
In the most reckless of combinations
That left me solving equations
Long after I could breath
And I'll always blame you
For the knowledge of blacking out
Days after trying
To figure you out
Track Name: Sit, Stay, Rollover
they put the newspaper up on the place where we use to mark our height on the walls
and all the would be astronauts, they're stuck working the shopping malls
so i guess it's safe to say that we're screwed

As a wolf in sheep skin,
you don't go messing around
bury in to my chin
and take a part of you
and all to move your feet up off the ground
move your feet up off the ground
But the odds are stacked against you,
so get ready..

you keep the wolves at bay with the flesh from your back
the flesh from your back and oh
they'll tell you tor paint by numbers but if it feels off track
it feels off track and oh
you'll keep the wolves at bay with the flesh from your back
the flesh from your back

You're indifferent or insane
I never thought of you that way
I never thought of you at all
You're indifferent or insane
I never thought of you that way
I never thought of you at all

I woke in a hospital had to walk my ass four miles in the freezing cold
and no sir, we've never been homeless
but that doesn't mean we ever found home

In the depths of a new breed
you have your head in the clouds
born in sheep skin clothing
I'm the best to take you out
to move your feet up off the ground

you keep the wolves at bay with the flesh from your back
the flesh from your back and oh
they'll tell you tor paint by numbers but if it feels off track
it feels off track and oh
you'll keep the wolves at bay with the flesh from your back
the flesh from your back

You're indifferent or insane
I never thought of you that way
I never thought of you at all

THERE'S NO HOPE, IN JERSEY
I'M A LOSER, SO KILL ME!
THERE'S NO HOPE, IN JERSEY
I'M A LOSER, SO KILL ME!
Track Name: Cap'n Hook
do you think of me
when your brain runs dry
do you miss me kid
do you wish i'd follow, well I'll try
to be half gentlemen
to not get so sentimental
to try and kick this junk
and keep your makeup

I never want to play, this silly game for keeps
and you pass out in bed, I sneak out when you sleep

I know you think I'm great,
all your friends say, that I'm nice
and you miss me kid
you wish I'd follow, well I'll try
to be half gentlemen
to not get so sentimental
to try and kick this junk
and keep your makeup

I never want to play, this silly game for keeps
and you pass out in bed, I sneak out when you sleep
And if you didn't give me the time of day
I'd turn out fine

who loves the kids
who will keep us, in line
who loves the kids
who will keep us, in line

Do you like me now
Do you love me now
Do you like me now and could you love now
if you like me now
if you like me now
if you like me now then whose the dummy now

who loves the kids
who will keep us, in line
who loves the kids
who will keep us, in line
